What people are saying about Troms og Finnmark County

We booked a half day with my girlfriend and we were delighted. From the pick up at the meeting point, to the sled ride through the wonderful landscape inland from Tromsø, to the petting time with the dogs in the camp, it was a really great time! We really felt that the dogs loved to go out for a walk! They were all adorable, and the guide accompanying us was really nice. When we came back, we had a moment by the fire with cakes and tea during which we could pose. In short, really good, I recommend!
